While we transition from summer into fall, there are certain traditional mainstays we can always look forward to, among them being pumpkin-spice everything. But is there perhaps a new seasonal flavor that will change everything?
Starbucks has launched a new horchata-inspired Frappuccino, and it’s pretty epic. The Horchata Almond Milk Frappuccino is a blend of almond milk, cinnamon dolce syrup, coffee and ice. The drink is then topped with whipped cream, a caramel swirl and cinnamon-sugar sprinkles. It’s the perfect fall-to-summer transition drink, yeah? The icy-cold Frappuccino is the perfect temp for summer, and yet the flavors of cinnamon and caramel absolutely tease the coziness of fall. .
The internet is pretty excited too.

Apparently an Horchata Frappuccino comes out today from Starbucks. Leaning towards getting it, and leaning towards hating myself after.

While the horchata we are familiar with is traditionally rice-based and served with vanilla and cinnamon, this is clearly an inspired recreation we’re excited to try.
The horchata-style Frappuccino debuts at Starbucks stores in the United States and Canada on Aug. 8 — that’s today! So get involved.
